Family place with fresh and honest food

It's a taverna which helps customers of the Glykeria Hotel to have their food fresh and yammy. Run by Glykeria herself and her two brothers, it delivers authentic Greek country food and very moderate prices - but one may immediately forget about money, finding him/herself on the veranda practically... read more

Our party of four agreed that this was probably the best food we had for our whole holiday. We were greeted by the extremely friendly and helpful guy who was serving. He explained different dishes to us to help us make our choices (pies, pork tenderloin, chicken in honey, roasted lamb, fried zucchini balls, local wine and beer). The view... More

Really enjoyed the food we ordered at this restaurant, which we stopped by on the way to the beach. Particularly enjoyed the pork knucklebone.

Ok. I am from Crete and I think that these fellows have taken the traditional Cretan dishes to a whole other level. Well done!!!! Oh and there is also the sun setting in the water right in front of your table.

We found this place when we were looking for hotels on this side of Crete and even though we didn't stay here, we did come here to eat. The food was absolutely delicious, so good we came here a second time and were just as satisfied. And the view made it all the more inviting.

We have dined in some of the best restaurants in Chania town and prefecture during our visit. The average price for a huge, delicious dinner including alcoholic beverages in local tavernas (not necessarily touristic per se) was 35 Euros. In the countryside the prices are much lower, for example, in one of the most well known restaurants, where the chef... More

The view is amazing sitting on the terrace overlooking the beautiful sea next to Elafonisi. The food is ok but the overall impression was not great, especially in terms of cleanliness

The view is, like everywhere in that area, quite amazing. The food served has a very good standard, though it is not excellent or exceeding. Service is very friendly, it's a real family business. I can recommend the Moussaka which is - and that is not very common - really good. It is not so easy as it might seem... More
